Mirror Wall

A large mirror is mounted on the wall. As visitors enter the space, the surface of the mirror begins to flutter in a subtle wave-like motion. Visitors facing the mirror become irritated by the vibrating reflection of themselves and their surroundings. This sensation causes not only a vague feeling of dizziness but also a latent distrust of one’s own eyes and spatial perception. As the mirror displays a different picture of the space, viewers question their own position within the room.
